About AYP II: In May, 2018, HAKIARDHI, Tanzania Natural Resource Forum (TNRF) and Parakuyo Pastoralist Indigenous Community Development Organization (PAICODEO) under the funding from Care International through Care Tanzania started implementation of Ardhi Yetu Programme II (AYP II). The project is taking place after the phase out of AYP I which was a four years project that started in 2014 to 2017. AYP I focused on addressing challenges over the land sector in the country.

AYP II is a four years project starting from 2018 to 2021 and will cover 11 districts; Kiteto, Simanjiro, Chemba, Iringa rural, Kilolo, Mufindi, Kilombero, Morogoro DC, Morogoro rural, Mvomero and Kilosa. Apart from addressing land issues, this phase will integrate land issues and climate change resilience and adaptation measures. This aims at helping communities through use of traditional and scientific measures in addressing climate change. Along with climate change the project will take consideration of Gender Sensitive climate vulnerability and Capacity Assessment while developing Community Adaptation Action Planning and Implementation (CAAP).
